CRADLE TO GRAVE

            Dr. Robert Ley succinctly outlines the role of the state in controlling the lives of its people:

            Our state never releases the human being from the cradle to the grave.  We start with the child of three years:  as soon as he begins to think, he is already given a little flag to carry.  Thereafter follow school, Hitler Youth, S.A. , military service.  We do not let go of the human being and when all that is over, the Labor Front comes and takes him once more and does not let him go until he dies, whether he likes it or not.

From The Holocaust:  A Study of Genocide  ( New York :  The Board of Education of the City of New York , 1979) p. 230
